In case you missed it, or forgot: for the month of July, the first book of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is on sale for a mere $0.99!
Treason brings a young lass’s desperate thane to her mountain home, where she is recruited as a spy. A siege, traitorous lords, and a scheme to kill her thane test her strength, her love of her kin, and her alien blood. With the help of a mysterious alien relic, she undertakes a dangerous mission. Can she succeed or will the assassins tracking her cost her all?
A powerful tale seemingly set in a world of medieval fantasy, but with roots in science fiction.
Check out Sword’s Edge while on sale, and if you like it, you just might like to catch up on the series before the next book is released this autumn!
Available in a variety of ebook formats!
Now for the hard work – polishing that baby until it shines and checking for continuity errors, typos, and awaiting the verdict from My Physicist™.
Within a few months (tentative deadline is autumn equinox) I hope the book will be out.
If you’ve not yet read The Sword’s Edge Chronicles, now is a great time to start, not only because you’ll have books one and two plus the prequel to plow through before book three is out, but right now, the first book of the series, Sword’s Edge, is on for $0.99!
(How’s that for a run-on sentence? 😀 )
It is a truth universally acknowledged that writers are needy people; we crave feedback.
So imagine how happy I was at finding new reviews for the Sword’s Edge Chronicles.
This one specifically is for Sword’s Edge:
I’m not typically a sci-fi reader. Hey, I had trouble with Narnia the first time around. That said, I really enjoyed following Tam as she is lambasted with discovery after discovery about herself. I had trouble putting it down. I wanted to know the secrets surrounding the other characters in relation to her. In fact, there was so much “biography” and “history” to be uncovered in her story, that I found I could follow it easily. I’m eager to read the other books in the series.
And this one is for the whole series (wheee!):
I’ve just finished reading (a few days ago) all three of the Sword’s Edge novels (including the prequel). Bought and downloaded to my Kindle. I thoroughly enjoyed them — they completely blew me away! I’m absolutely amazed at what Loriendill’s written — characterization, creation of an entirely new universe, etc. I want more! Please tell me more is coming!
To both reviewers: thank you so much! I’m thrilled you’ve enjoyed my stories. And yes, more books are coming. The next one should be out by fall.
TFW you finish the dialogue of the final scene of a novel, and know it’s great, then realize you forgot an important plot point and must rewrite the whole bloody thing! *bangs head on desk*
On the upside for anyone interested, when I get done fixing this last scene, then the rough draft of the third book of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles, Laws and Prophecies, will be complete!
Now for beta readers!
If you have read Sword’s Edge, you know a very little about the mysterious aliens called the Enaisi, also sometimes referred to as the Elders. But where did these aliens come from, and why did they help Tam’s ancestors?
Unlikely Prophet tells the history of the Crossing, answering many of the questions which arise not only from Sword’s Edge but its sequel, Children of the Enaisi.
This prequel, which takes place over 1000 years before Tam’s birth, is now available in print and ebook formats. And fear not! If you haven’t read the other books in the series, this one would make a fun place to start.
I now have three books in front of me. The third book in the Deuces Wild series, the third book in the Sword’s Edge Chronicles, and the second book of the prequels to the Chronicles, which tells what happens after Unlikely Prophet.
Which one do I finish next? Decisions… Decisions…
To quote Johnny Five: “Need input!”
From early feedback on Unlikely Prophet, it seems to follow a pattern I’ve discovered from feedback and reviews of previous books.
I’m seriously considering supplying a warning for my books that they cause strange effects, such as the inability to stop reading and forgoing sleep in order to finish them.
